West Ham have today declared that Manuel Lanzini will return for next weekend’s clash against Stoke at the Boleyn.
The 22 year old midfield creator missed yesterday’s game against Manchester United after taking a knock in training on Friday – apparently after the team had been chosen.
He could have been a massive miss but such was the application and determination of the Hammers side, the team came home with a brilliant point.
The Argentine playmaker, however, will be back for the game against Mark Hughes’ outfit with a source revealing the injury is not serious.
ClaretandHugh was told this morning: “It was very unfortunate but probably typical of our luck at the moment – all the injuries are to key players.
“However, the injury to Manu is minor and the medical staff have no doubts at all that he will be recovered in time for the next match.”
